No Alcohol. No Sugar. Non-Intoxicating.

The New Non-Alcoholic Negroni Swaps Alcohol for Mushrooms

A Nostalgic Journey to a Modern-Day Mushroom Delight

In a world where trends come and go, the Negroni remains a steadfast companion. It's more than a cocktail; it's a conversation starter, a catalyst for connection, and a testament to the fact that some things—like a perfectly balanced blend of gin, vermouth, and Campari—are timeless for a reason.

The Negroni: an instant cocktail classic

A crimson elixir that traces its lineage to the bustling streets of Florence in the early 20th century, this cocktail emerged as a symbol of refined taste. We can trace its origins to the ingenious mind of Count Camillo Negroni. After acquiring a taste for strong liquor while working as a rodeo clown in the American Wild West (yes, really!), the drink’s namesake once famously ordered up a stiffer riff on the much tamer Americano cocktail. With its precise blend of gin, vermouth, and Campari, the Negroni carried an air of luxury that immediately appealed to the elite. A sip was not just a sip; it was a statement. Thus, a cocktail classic was born.

Fast forward to today, and the Negroni continues to captivate our senses with its timeless allure. It evokes a sense of nostalgia, whisking us back to a bygone era of elegance and charm…with an edge of cowboy lawlessness, of course. The clink of glasses in a dimly lit bar, the soft jazz playing in the background – these are the memories the Negroni conjures, reminding us of days when conversation flowed as smoothly as the vermouth.

Negroni non-alcoholic cocktails: the new drink staple

And yet, in the words of the ever-wise Anthony Bourdain: the drink will “hit you like a freight train after four or five.” Whether you’re taking a break from alcohol, coping with the bodily demands of pregnancy or early parenthood, or wanting to simply enjoy your favorite cocktail classic without any consequences, there are plenty of great reasons to seek out a less boozy, equally delicious mood-boosting alternative to your favorite crimson elixir. 

You’ll find plenty of recipes out there to DIY an NA Negroni, but if you’re like us, you’d rather keep your fridge stocked with a ready-to-drink version fueled with functional mushrooms for whenever you’re feeling a little nostalgic and edgy. And so, in a nod to the great Camillo Negroni coupled with our love for plants and mushrooms…the Little Saints Negroni Spritz was born.

The Little Saints Negroni Spritz: more than a “NOgroni”

Cutting the alcohol is one thing, but our Little Saints Negroni Spritz non-alcoholic cocktail is a little overachiever. It goes a couple steps further for you by:

  1. Swapping out the hard stuff for Reishi mushroom extract and CBD, two master plants that naturally decrease our stress and anxiety while lifting our moods. These adaptogens help ground us in our interactions by dropping us out of our heads and into our bodies, leaving us feeling emotionally attuned and sharp the morning after we imbibe. Saturday morning brunch conversation has never been better – flowing even more smoothly than the vermouth? Possibly.
  2. Crafting a sugar-free concoction that never compromises on flavor. Our non-alcoholic cocktails are always sweetened with monkfruit, not sugar. With tasting notes of bitters, orange rind, and juniper, and a bubbly, vivid coral hue, the Little Saints Negroni Spritz still captivates and allures, sans the sugar crash.

Your newest steadfast companion, the Little Saints Negroni Spritz cultivates a new era of imbibing – a have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too solution for Negroni lovers who desire a mood boost, but don’t love hangovers. With reishi mushroom, the Negroni Spritz is a true catalyst for deeper, more authentic connection. We might be a little biased, but we think it’s the latest testament to the fact that – yes, truly – some things are timeless for a reason. Negroni is going to be one of them.
